In our phone chat, mom wasn’t sure her the interior of her house was fit for photos. We ended up face timing after she described and I’m so glad she was game! Their kitchen is newly renovated and bright white! It worked out so well, her real estate team did their branding photos at her house too!
At the end of our family session, we were able to get some gorgeous headshots for her real estate business! Double dip, y’all!
Remember the little things
Most of us think we’re going to remember every detail of our kids as they change.
Truth is we won’t.
Our memories fade faster than their chubby cheeks.
In home photo sessions are the pinnacle of freezing time. These are the days – doors left open, food on the floor, and fingerprints on the wall.
Photography allows us to relive these fleeting moments over and over. Freeze a moment, a look, an action and come back to it any time you want.
What are In home lifestyle sessions?
In home lifestyle family photos are exactly what they sound like! I come in for 60-90 minutes and capture your family doing their thang. We’ll have a prioritized list of things they love doing and sweet milestones they’re mastering. We work down that list top to bottom and keep going as long as we’re having fun!
- Crawling up the stairs
- Swinging in the back yard
- Jumping on Mommy & Daddy’s bed
- Reaching for a light switch
- Marking the growth chart
- Licking a bowl of batter
- Reading on the bed
- Standing on their tippy toes
- Nerf Wars
- Tea parties
- Snacks at the table
- Legos on the floor
Does it have to be at my house?! What if my house isn’t cute?!
This freaks most people out. But it doesn’t need to be your WHOLE house, nor does your house need to be styled for Southern Living. Think of two rooms – a living space, kitchen, and most of the time the master bed. That’s it. We can add in the front porch or back patio and you’ll be shocked what a full story we can capture!
What more details? I’ve written ALL about it – how to prep your house, when to schedule, and WHY right here. But don’t wait. They’ll be different people in six months!
